How can it get much better than having a four-day weekend and short weeks either side?
Here at madebyzen HQ, we cannot wait for our Easter break as it holds special memories with our families. Some of our team have shared their personal experiences of Easter:
Amelia, CST: During my time at Primary school we would go to mass and celebrate the life of Jesus and his resurrection. The day would be filled with making Easter cards and gifts to give to the family during the Easter weekend. I would visit the family during Good Friday and Easter Sunday and exchange Easter eggs.
Rosalind, NBD: Arranging an Easter hunt for the family; Spending hours making Easter hats and baskets for Georgia to not wear but Jordie my friends Son loved them and wore them with pride and a big smile.
Knowing there’s an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner, having my eggs lined up on the shelf and tormenting my bothers because they had eaten theirs and I still had mine 😊
The only day the shops were closed.
Going to my nannys for Easter Sunday dinner.
Daffodils on the table.
A happy time
Natalie, PD: ‘Waking up on Easter morning to the smell of Mum cooking ‘Torrijas’ a Spanish Easter tradition, similar to the English eggy bread infused with orange, cinnamon and other lovely spices. The ultimate Easter breakfast, followed by an Easter egg treasure hunt around the garden with all the family’
However, you spend Easter weekend, diffusing certain Essential or Fragrance oils help to enhance your celebration. Remember, smell evokes memories. 😊
